Georgia Oboh begins her 2019 Ladies European Tour (LET) debut on the Sunshine Ladies Tour in South Africa with the first tournament at the Canon Ladies Open.
The Sunshine Ladies Tour is Africa’s premier professional ladies golf tour with around 8 to 10 events around South Africa. The first event begins on today at the Irene Country Club in Johannesburg.
Georgia Oboh is currently at the Irene Golf and Country Club, Johannesburg preparing for the Canon Ladies Open, where she will tee off with other female professionals from several countries around the world.
Following her professional debut win in Cote d’Ivoire at the 2018 Open Championships, Georgia Oboh is quite happy to keep competing on the African continent, promoting African Ladies golf as her passion for the future.
“I am so excited starting my first LET tournament in Africa, especially in South Africa. The weather is friendly and the golf course is superb with a lot of trees just like any course in Europe. I am looking forward to having an exciting time and hope for the best in my first LET tournament in 2019,” she enthgused.
Oboh will compete in a 65-strong playing field that will feature former LPGA Tour champion, Lee-Anne Pace, Sunshine Ladies Tour winners, Ashleigh Buhai, Bertine (Strauss) Faber, Kim Williams, Monique Smit, Tandi Mc Callum and Nobuhle Dlamini from Swaziland, former LET winner, Laurette Maritz, as well as 21 international campaigners from 13 countries.
A number of rookies will also make their Sunshine Ladies Tour debut, including 2018 Sanlam SA Women’s Stroke Play champion, Casandra Hall.
Five-time Sunshine Ladies Tour champion, Stacy Bregman is embracing the pressure that comes as defending champion as she prepares to tee it up in the Canon Open. Bregman, who captured her first Sunshine Ladies Tour title in the Zambia Ladies Open five years ago, racked up victories in the Sun International Ladies Challenge, Dimension Data Ladies Pro-Am and Cape Town Ladies Open in 2015.
Last year she ended a three-year winning drought when a closing 71 at Pretoria Country Club helped her towards a four under par total and four-shot victory for her fifth triumph.
